Linda Kelly Sea Shanties on Woman's Hour BBC R4 (17) RE: Sea Shanties on Woman's Hour BBC R4 23 Jul 11


Well just to give some background..the expert who was supposed to do this spot dropped out on Wednesday and the producer rang me to ask if I knew a female who could step in at the last minute. Sue was a shellback and hadsailed on tallships. None if us knew what the wquestions were they were based on a five minute chat we had by phone to the researcher. We were told to sing a traditional shanty of a certain length and specifically not depressing. Ehich for us is a bit of a bugvger! Hey ho.
